If you lose one or more teeth or your teeth fail to function due to infection, dental implants would be the right solution. While conventional removable dentures sit on your gums, which lead to slippage and pain, dental implants integrate into your jawbone and provide stable fixed teeth that allow you to return to a completely normal diet.

Besides, dentures do not prevent the resorption of the jaw bone, which in turn causes a sunken appearance and aged look. Dental implants replace tooth roots, stop the resorption process, and ensure a youthful and natural appearance. Although dental implants are a great solution, many people don’t know what to expect.

Dental implants are an excellent choice to restore teeth giving a natural and steady appearance. If you are interested in improving your smile and oral health with dental implants, visit LBR Dental Implants in Hyderabad. This blog will provide you with the details of dental implant procedures.

What Is A Dental Implant?

Implantation procedures have never been easier. A dental implant is a small titanium post that gets drilled into the jaw bone to replicate a natural tooth root.

A Step-By-Step Procedure for Dental Implants:

Initial Consultation and Dental Assessment:

If you feel you will benefit from dental implants, you should talk to an implantologist first. Every candidate is suitable for dental implantation irrespective of the nature of the bone and their systemic health status.The Implantologist assess the health and structure of your mouth to determine procedure and the implant technique.

During a dental examination, the doctor will take help of the diagnostic aids like OPG Ray and CBCT Scan,Then he will talk to you about the recommended treatment plan and walk you through the procedure.

1. Basal Implant System:

Day 1: In this technique the remaining hopeless teeth, if any will be removed under local anesthesia and the implants will be placed flawlessly, which means that the gum tissue need not be opened for implant placement.

This technique takes the support of the Basal bone which is present in all and is highly mineralized, allowing immediate integration of the bone with the implants, cutting down the waiting period, the number of sittings, and the complicated surgical procedures.

The upper jaw requires around 8 to 10 implants including the Pterygoid implants which are placed in the posterior-most region of the upper jaw, behind the third molars, these are very crucial and require a very good surgical hand as they avoid sinus lift procedure, bone grafting and also the cantilevers so that the patient can get a full set of upper teeth within 3 days.

The lower arch requires around 8 implants and if the nerve positioning in the posterior mandible is high, then a technique called Nerve bypass is used to avoid bone grafting procedures. Impressions are made after the implantation procedure and temporary teeth will be placed. a patient will be put on medication to avoid postoperative pain and edema.

Day 2: Metal try-in will be done.

Day 3: Ceramic try-in will be done and the permanent bridges will be cemented on the implants.

The person can have his food immediately from day 3 onwards but, preferably a little softer diet for a week, followed by the food of his choice. This system is suitable for Smokers and Diabetics as well.

Conventional Two-piece system:

During the procedure, the remaining standing teeth will be removed under local anesthesia, sinus lift procedure and bone grafting will be done if there is no sufficient bone height.Most people don’t need a bone graft, but if you need it is an important step that should be done. Bone grafting is a procedure that builds the jawbone to create a solid foundation for your dental implants.

Depending on how much bone you need, the healing process can take weeks or months based on the requirement and then replaced with implants. It can be an “ All on 4” or All on 6” technique where 4 or 6 implants will be placed in each of the jaws respectively .

Placing The Implant:

Dental implants are usually performed under Local anesthesia. After thoroughly numbing the mouth, the doctor will cut a small flap in the gum tissue and then open a small hole in your jawbone with drills. Then the doctor places the implant in the hole and closes the gum tissue.

Dental implants are topped with screws or healing caps. The cover screw is flat, while the healing cap is shaped like a support, the part that attaches the implant to the final restoration. Whichever type is used needs time to recover, osseointegration occurs during this period, or the bones and implants combine into one solid unit.

Abutments And Crowns:

After your implants get fused to the jawbone, you can go for the abutments and crown. During this process, the doctor opens the gum again and replaces the cover screws or healing cap with an abutment. Then carefully place the crown on top.

If there is proper bone structure then, the Two-piece implants can also be loaded immediately.
